It sounds as if excessive water is pooling in that area. You may have to work on drainage, so that the standing water has a way to drain away from that spot. Without seeing the lay of the land and the nature of the native soil, its not possible for us to give specific directions on how to achieve this. We recommend that you hire a local landscape specialist to consult and make recommendations.
